Interview at Ruth A. Casey's Blog

Today’s post is an interview of me by Ruth A. Casey. My giveaway is traveling there as well, so any entries here or there works for me.

Here is a sample question:

If you were a millionaire would you still write?


Are you kidding me? Being a millionaire would allow me to write for a living. I would put out a healthy four books a year. When I run into writer’s block for one idea, I’ll simply pursue another. And thus I would earn my next million!

Becoming Little – Guest Post at Carina Press

My guest post is online at Carina Press. It’s called Becoming Little. Here’s a snippet:

I am of slightly above-average height, but I have written a book about a little person, or a dwarf.


In order to get into character, I had to do a lot of mental adjustment. My heroine, Gretchen, is barely four feet tall. She lives in post-medieval Europe, somewhere around the Schwarzwald, or the Black Forest. She has the most common form of dwarfism, achondroplasia. It is the form you are probably most familiar with.


In order to get to know my character–to try her out, to see if she would work–I wrote a little scene about the kind of treatment she has to put up with:

A Star for a Day

Today, I am the featured author at Carina Press’s social media outlets. This is when they have a Facebook, Twitter and blog blitz for each author during their release week.

My post is called “Becoming Little”, and it is about how I put myself into the character of a woman who is barely four feet tall.

On Twitter, Carina Press will be posting little-known facts about me, and on Facebook, they will post some of my favorite lines form the book.

I would love to see some familiar faces, so please join me!

Today I also put up my first-ever book video, my quirky and long talked-about video tour of my book setting using MineCraft:

Group Blog Post With Excerpt

My post today is over at Here Be Magic, a group blog of which I am a member. In the post, I include an excerpt that I wonder the wisdom of including, because it’s one of my favorite parts of the story. But I’ve gone and done it anyway–and I hope you enjoy it!

By the way, you should subscribe to that blog because these are a special and lovely group of authors, of which I am grateful to be a part!

Guest Blogging Again!

Today, I break the laws of physics by being in two places at once. Jennifer Estep still has my post as her top post, and she till has the giveaway open. So if you haven’t visited yet, please stop by.

Plus, Taryn Kincaid has me as guest at her blog, in a feature she calls Friend Friday. And mine is her inaugural post!

Thank you so much, both of you!

I took a long weekend so I’ll be replying to comments there all day.

And finally, just for fun, I created a twitter handle for my slightly evil fairy godmother. Yes, it is silly, but I figure of some guy can get a million followers by becoming Lord Voldemort online, I might be able to snag a few with my feisty fairy. Be among the first to follow eFairy Godmother and she’ll give you a fairy blessing.
